Valentin Messina opened to 125,000 from under the gun and was called by Antonin Duda on the button as well as Stefan Schillhabel in the big blind. On a flop of [8hh], Messina continued for 155,000 and Duda called whereas Schillhabel check-folded.
Messina then check-folded the turn to a bet of 325,000 from Duda.
The Frenchman defended his big blind against the 120,000-raise of Hossein Ensan but quickly folded to a continuation bet on the flop. Messina remains in the lead, but Jean Montury is hot on his heels.
